Siam Square is a 2017 Thai horror film directed by Pairach Khumwan. The movie stars Morakot Liu, Eisaya Hosuwan and Nothasit Kotimanuswanich.
The so-called “Shibuya” of Thailand has been the focal point of Bangkok for half a century. The shopping centres, hip standalone shops, popular cafes, and restaurants are all there.
With increasing competition in the University entrance examination, a lot of cram schools have shot up all over the area, leading to more traffic and activities for teenagers. But when night falls, it becomes the place of an urban legend.
They say that to pass the National Entrance Exam, you have to worship an evil spirit. By tying red threads onto a specific chair, you increase your chances of passing the exam.
When a group of nonbelievers finds the “red threads chair” in one of the so-called cram schools, they decide to perform the rituals and try to find out what happened.
During the same time, there is a rumour that the evil spirit of a girl who disappeared mysteriously over thirty years ago has now come back and is walking the empty streets late at night. When one of their friends is haunted and dies after an incident, the teenagers try to find out what’s really going on…
